Van Tran for State Board of Equalization

Welcome and thank you for visiting my website. I am a taxpayer advocate and small business owner.  Previously, I served as the Mayor Pro Tem of Garden Grove and a California state lawmaker, representing Orange County.  While in the Assembly, I was appointed as an Assistant Republican Leader and served on a number of influential committees including, Business & Professions, Banking & Finance, Utilities & Commerce, Judiciary, Governmental Organization, among others.  I also served as Chairman of the Select Committee on International Trade. 
During my six years in the State Assembly, I cultivated a consistent voting record as a strong fiscal conservative, consistently earning “A” ratings from local and state taxpayer advocacy groups.  
I deeply understand your concern on how difficult it is to run a profitable business with the burden of high taxes and unnecessary regulations.
California needs to simplify its arcane tax system and streamline regulations to help small businesses to create jobs for our economy.
We need an advocate on the State Board of Equalization who can be a strong advocate for small businesses.
As a member of the State Board of Equalization, I will protect taxpayers in the following ways:

  • Work with State Legislators in Sacramento to reduce sales tax or use tax.
  • Work to redesign a new, tax-payer friendly tax system for the Board of Equalization, making the process easier to access for business owners, and hard-working taxpayers in California.
  • As business owners have a sales tax issue with Board of Equalization, I am willing to assist you to resolve your tax matter fairly.

Thank you for your trust and confidence in me.  
Van Tran
Candidate for the Board of Equalization, 4th District
